Marc Colin founded this small domaine in the late 1970's in Chassagne-Montrachet and todays specializes in this great village for white wines as well as in Saint-Aubin. Today, three of his children, Caroline, Joseph and Damien, work at and run the domaine. The press has given great praise for recent vintages, including this quote from Neal Martin at Wine Advocate: 'This is a knockout range of wines in 2013 from Marc Colin. There is just an honesty, a deceptive simplicity to them because on the surface they are so delicious, yet underneath are some articulate expressions of terroir, stunning mineralité and hidden complexity that tends to become clearer with aeration. I have heaped praise upon Domaine Marc Colin in previous years. This is no different. Domaine Marc Colin is one of the best growers in the Côte de Beaune, perhaps to Saint Aubin what Jean-Marc Roulot is to Meursault. And you can quote me on that.'

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Cailleret has a strict, mineral-driven, Puligny-like bouquet that is much more austere than I would have expected given the growing season. The palate is very well balanced with a palpable sense of energy, superb acidity and an almost clinical, harmonious finish that finally delivers beautifully interwoven tropical tones that linger on the aftertaste. This is very impressive.
